Compare the Way Obsession is Presented in The Collector, Frankenstein and Hamlet In both The Collector and Frankenstein the protagonist’s obsessions become a reality early in the novel and the way in which they react to this reveals a lot about the character and their obsession. In The Collector when Clegg finally stops fantasising about kidnapping Miranda and actually does take her he appears to be completely overcome by what he has done saying, ‘I lost my head, I didn’t know what to do’. This shows that Clegg understands what he is doing is wrong and that he is unsure whether he should have kidnapped Miranda; however it could also be interpreted as sheer excitement as people often ‘lose their head’ when they are overly excited. It also helps to understand the extent of the effect and the power Miranda has over him as instead of being overjoyed that he has achieved what he wanted Clegg appears terrified and worried. This is conveyed through short sentences and phrases such as ‘She bent forward to peer in, I flashed a look down the road, no one, and then I got her in’ that create a quick pace showing his hysteria.

Are Humans Good or Evil – Case Study Throughout these two episodes of “Lost” both the good and the evil come out of most of the characters, but the ones’ philosopher theory that is more visibly shining out is Jean Jacque Rousseau’s view of human nature. The first example that happened right from the beginning of the movie is Jack waking up and running back to the plane crash, since that’s where all the survivors are. From him just doing so shows that he would not want to live a life of solitary. He wanted the presents of others; along with helping out as much as he can since he would want support back. A different example or support within group of survivors is when Claire (a pregnant woman) is close to giving birth and she is in need of support and comfort.
How does Golding present Jack as savage and violent in Lord of the Flies? There is a great deal of change within jack over the course of Lord of the Flies, he begins the books seeming to be a positive influence on the boys small society but his character slowly develops into being a sort of antagonist figure, or at the very least a “negative” influence, a figure seeped in tribal violence and savagery. Golding uses animalistic imagery in his description of jack, for example “ape-like” and “hiss” The simile Ape-like suggests a theme of devolution within jack. Of him losing his very humanity as he develops (based on the theory of evolution and humans sharing a common ancestor with monkeys etc.). His devolution into an ape represents a change towards a more primitive nature, and possibly violent due to the lack of sentience.
Truly, it is a horrible story with gore and cannibalism but very similar to the story with animals. The only difference is that people played the role of the animals of the first story. The men more readily find the second story plausible, but do not want to believe it because it contains people eating people, gore, and violence different than that of the first story. Humans are favored and valued over the animals. Once Pi finishes telling his story to the insurance men, he asks them “which is the better story, the story with the animals or the story without the animals” (344).
